Friday Firsts - Tamales
Hi everybody and happy Friday! If you're new to Friday Firsts click the link above or in my sidebar for more information.
I have been occupied the past few days by Project Food Blog! It has been a whirlwind so far. We had a 5 course dinner with 7 guests for Challenge 3 so I really hope I make it! I'm excited and hopeful. Thank you if you took the time to vote for me, it really means a lot.
As if you couldn't see it coming a mile away - my first for this week is Tamales!! For my Challenge #2 entry I tackled authentic Mexican cuisine. I made the masa, the pork filling, and the chili sauce all from scratch. Then Johnny and I hand rolled 71 tamales and steamed them. They turned out terrific and I'm so glad we have some in the freezer to enjoy later from all our hard work!
Now it's your turn to tell me about your first! To participate in Friday Firsts create a blog post featuring a "first" of yours. Next, link that blog post below and tell us about it! If you don't have a blog or a specific post to link to please tell us about your first in the comment section! Any and all participation is welcome!
